Integrating technology into the curriculum doesn’t have to be an elaborate process. In this issue I take the mBot and use it to teach basic science and math concepts. All we need is a few basic lines of code for the robot.
The mBot from Makeblock is a robot ideal for learning STEAM concepts. STEAM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. STEAM is an extension of STEM with the inclusion of Arts. I like to include Research to form STREAM. Research incorporates reading and writing. It also includes vocabulary and academic language.
